The song video of “Pashmina” from “Fitoor”, starring Aditya Roy Kapur and Katrina Kaif, became an instant hit for its soulful music and the actors’ beautiful dance moves. However, some Twitterati think that the Bollywood video is inspired from Ed Sheeran’s popular song video “Thinking Out Loud”.
Sung and composed by Amit Trivedi, “Pashmina” has been receiving praises for its music, choreography and other features. The song video brought out the chemistry between Aditya and Katrina.
Apparently, there are some similarities between the two song videos. The familiar aspects include Katrina’s costume, choreography and the room ambience. Some of the tweets that pointed out the resemblance are as follows:
Pashmina tou bilkul Ed sheeran ki video ki copy hai but still Katrina and Aditya are looking super hot together.

Although some say that “Pashmina” is a copy of “Thinking Out Loud”, the song video, directed by Bosco Martis, received great response. This is the second track from the film, first being “Yeh Fitoor Mera”, and both the songs have managed to impress the viewers.
Directed by Abhishek Kapoor, “Fitoor” is based on Charles Dickens’ novel “Great Expectations”. This is the first time that Aditya and Katrina have shared screen space. The film is set to hit screens on 12 February. Check the two song videos below and let us know if you think “Pashmina” is a copy of “Thinking Out Loud” by posting in the comments section.
